    I have uploaded some pictures of the internal shell badges as a possible clue of my question... sent also an email to mapex company but didnīt got any answer... pictures available in the following link:

    So, you Mapex Gods (experts) any comments or evidences about how can I get the specific model of my set? Also If you consider that the info I have is wrong, please let me know, Would really like to learn everything about my set.

    Appreciate your attention, greetings from Costa Rica, Central America.
    Send those pics to Mapex, they should be able to tell you. One of the best customer service dept's going.

    Better late than never, I suppose.



    And yes, that is a hihat stand with the pedal pointed the wrong way in the second image. I wanted to be able to ride closed hats and still work my regular hats with my foot. I haven't found a post long enough to mount both top and bottom on a regular cymbal stand. The jury's still out on whether or not I like it, anyway.

    Very cool! I have a remote and a closed HI-Hat systems I use from time to time. I also have a Gibraltar Vertical Stealth Mounting System that I'm very happy with which allows me to eliminate cymbal stands all together! lol. Here's an older pic of my Saturns, I will be setting them up shortly mixing the Stealth and rack system together and putting my Hi-Hats ( on the remote ) out front leaving my left side open for a couple of acrylic octobans. We'll see! lol. I have 7 kits but not the room for all to be set up at once, so I have to rotate set ups. I'm in So. Cal and I'm not lucky enough to have a basement.DSC01670.jpgDSC01646.jpg

    Had a chance to play this Mapex M Three series kit yesterday and I was so thoroughly impressed, I've been poking around on the internet and found some great deals on a few used Saturn series maple/walnut hybrid kits and I can now honestly say that Mapex sounds better than my DW's but I need a kit like I need another hole in my head...

    I've always thought that Mapex drums sounded better that DW drums.

    I was looking at this one. Saturn V Tour Marine White wrap: 16x24” 9x13” 14x14” 16x16” just north of $1700. I like squared dimensions on the floor toms and the 16” depth on a 24” kick. White marine wrap would look good under stage lights.

    I think we have another winner. That is perfect in every way.
